What is Drosophila suzukii? Not just another Drosophila species. D. suzukii is an invasive, destructive crop pest that originated in South East Asia. The species is also known as Spotted Wing Drosophila, because, as in many other Drosophila species, males have one dark spot on each wing and two sex combs (Figure A). D. suzukii recently invaded western countries and is threatening both European and American fruit industries.
